Hydroponics are plants that are grown without the use of natural soil; Coco Coir is one of the best medium to grow such plants. Coco peat has an outstanding water and air retention capacity, therefore allowing enough access of oxygen to roots even when watered just a little with a nutrient solution. Its anti-fungal properties also help to get rid of soil-borne diseases, hence curbing the use of pesticides.
Potting Soil Mix
The potting soil mix is a mixture of a variety of substances that facilitate faster and sustainable plant growth. Coco peat is one of the major ingredients of this ready-to-go mixture. The coco peat provides high water retention capacity to the soil and makes the soil highly aerated and fertile.
Coco peat is extensively used in greenhouses and nurseries as growbags or open-tops (easy planters). This facilitates easy direct addition of liquid nutrients and drainage. Plants and crops are perennially grown in greenhouses, and the cocos helps in a higher yield rate. This method is largely used for berries, cucumber, capsicum, and tomatoes. These growbags or easy planters are also used in floriculture.
Coco peat, whether used by itself or in a blend with black peat, is a remarkable medium for mushroom casing. Using coconut coir in the substrate results in optimum mycelial growth, and lesser time will be required for primordia initiation.
Horticulture / Floriculture
The coco peat serves as a growing medium in a wide variety of horticulture and floriculture. It acts as a soil conditioner and makes the soil aerated thereby increasing the amount of oxygen in the soil. Moreover, Coco Peat prevents the essential nutrients from leaching out of the soil.
The soil is the most important part in the plant growth. Neem coir, coco peat, husk chips and many of our products provide a lifelong conditioning of the soil thus helps in providing the plant with all essential nutrients required for their sustainable growth.
The germinating seeds require maximum moisture and all the essential nutrients. Coco Peat thus act as the best-growing medium for the seed raising by meeting all the moisture and nutrient requirements of the germinating seeds.
Coco peat can also be used as an absorbent as it has a multitude of applications. In a mixture with coconut fiber can be used for animal bedding which can later be used as a manure. Coir Pith has a high moisture retention and absorption capacity, hence they are used as an absorbent of oil and chemicals in different industries. It is also used for air and water filtration.
Home and Garden
Can be used as a growing medium and a soil conditioner for your home garden. They have high water retention capacity and are rich in nutrients thus they are best suited for applying in your garden to see your flowers bloom.
Geotextiles are manufactured from the coir fibres and they are extensively used in preventing soil erosion. They have also a broad spectrum of applications in the road works and surrounding dams.
